Auto Detailing

PROFESSIONAL AUTO DETAILING

What is detailing? Car detailing is the process of restoring your vehicle from its current state to show room quality. The next time you sit down in your ride take a meticulous look, not a casual look.  Inspect the dash, vents, steering wheel, cracks, crevasses, radio knobs, carpet, seats, cup holders, center console and under the seats. The areas to look at are almost endless. You’ll soon realize how many details there are to clean in a car and the amount of work it takes to obtain a perfect interior and exterior.When auto detailing is done the correct way, the first thing a client should say when they see the final result is WOW, I never knew my vehicle could look so good. If you’ve never said that, you haven’t picked the right detailer, and you don’t know what you’re missing.

If you are looking for Mr. Ding and Dent to just “touch up” your car or for an “express detail service” I am definitely not the car detailer to use. I do things one way and that’s the right way.  The two qualities that separate me from the competition for exceptional detailing are patience and discipline. Detailing a vehicles interior the Mr. Ding and Dent way is cleaning every square inch until I get it to that new look. Detailing an exterior is polishing so it looks like it’s off the factory floor. Auto detailing with Mr. Ding and Dent means delivering services in a way that simplifies your world, not complicates it, and gives you exceptional results. I want to be in this for the long haul with you and your vehicle which means building lasting relationships.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PAINT

In an effort to help you understand the results you will get with paint correction, I rank paint on a level of 1 to 10.  Upon inspecting your car, either on a scheduled estimate date or on the day of your appointment, we will inspect the paint and I will rank your current paint condition on a level of 1 to 10. 1 being so scratched that paint correction with a buffer and polish won’t do the trick and 10 being right off the factory floor.  To do this, your car MUST BE WASHED a day or two prior to your appointment or estimate date so I can get a good look at the condition of the paint. The majority of paint ranks between a 5 and 7. These cars are washed every once in a while by hand, while other times taken through a soft touch or touch free wash.

CLAYING – DECONTAMINATING PAINT

Claying a vehicle is decontaminating the paint and glass surfaces with the use of a detailing clay bar. A clay bar is used to remove embedded contaminates that become stuck to your cars paint and glass surfaces.  For example, any type of overspray from road construction or paint overspray at a construction site.  An easy way to tell if your car needs to be clayed is to wash and dry a small area on your car and then take a very thin plastic sandwich bag and put your fingers inside the bag and run your fingers over the paint.  If you can feel the specs and bumps on the surface your ride should be clayed.

This is included in the Full Detail Service.


PAINT ENHANCEMENT

This is included in the Full Detail Service.  Your car is hand washed and then decontaminated with the use of a clay bar (see the “Claying” section of my Auto Detailing Page) and waxed with a premium sealer. This alone will leave your paint super smooth and very shiny.  If you are looking to have swirl marks or fine scratches removed please check out the multi stage correction.

EXTERIOR – MULTI STAGE PAINT CORRECTION

This paint correction will bring your paint to a level 9+. This is ideal for those who are particular about their cars paint or someone looking for an unbeatable finish. This person will go the extra mile once their cars paint is corrected to wash it and take care of it properly to prevent scratching. This extra care will go a long way in keeping your cars paint corrected for a long time.

To start the process your car is hand washed and then decontaminated with the use of a clay bar. The paint is then buffed with a high-speed buffer using a premium cutting polish and wool pad. This buffer is the work horse in the polishing process. The second stage of this correction uses a different type of polisher, a foam pad and a finishing polish to refine the finish and perfect it.  In some cases, a customer will desire a 10+ finish and I will perform a third polish using an even more refined polish to jewel the finish to perfection. This third step will bring it to a 9.5 to 10+ level. A premium wax is then applied.
